Sergio Ramos plans to continue playing for Spain

Sergio Ramos wants to continue playing for Spain.

The Real Madrid defender made his 177th appearance for his country in the Nations League draw with Switzerland - surpassing legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon's European caps record - and feels he still has more to give for his nation.

Ramos said: "It is a pride to surpass a legend like Buffon in caps. In the end, when you start you don't think you can get that high.

"I have spent many hours running around here through the streets of Seville and there is a lot of effort behind it, perseverance and perseverance.

"In the end it is that. As long as I feel like it, I will continue. My head is in charge, and for now, it allows me."

Ramos added he had no plans to step away from penalty duty for Spain after twice missing from the spot against the Swiss.

He said: "If there was another penalty of course that I would take, of course.

"If I didn't approach it that way, I would stop being me."

Spain boss Luis Enrique doesn't feel he needs to offer help to the experienced Real Madrid star.

He said: "Everything that is generated around Ramos is neither new, nor old, nor is it anything.

"It is what it is and what it means to have a player of this level. It is normal that there is pressure around and you have to live with that.

"If there is someone with enough experience to handle this personal situation it is Sergio Ramos."
